Style Sees Growth in Religious Sectors


Having completed a number of new installations at churches, synagogues and other religious buildings, 2011 ended with Style seeing a dramatic rise in demand for moveable partitioning walls within this sector.

Any building that is central to a local community is used for a multitude of purposes, and changing the space to cater for varying events throughout each week is important. It also saves on heating and lighting when larger areas are not required, and by sub-dividing space into multiple rooms means more events can be hosted concurrently which helps draw in more revenue.

“Our most recent projects are profiled as case studies in this newsletter, and both highlight how space can be cleverly used in religious buildings,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.

Moveable partitioning walls not only enable space to be sub-divided, they can also enhance the aesthetics of a church, synagogue, mosque or other religious centre. Wood panelling is popular, as is glass to offer light and visibility, and there are a huge variety of choices to suit every need.

As sole UK distributors of DORMA, Skyfold and SWG, Style offers proven, market leading products supported by the level of service that has won Style the coveted AIS Contractors Gold Award for the last 4 years in succession.

“Whatever the requirement, we will be able to tailor a solution. We also have a great deal of experience of working within historic buildings which is seen as an important advantage when dealing with many churches where the main concern is the integrity of the building. Yet this is balanced with many very modern solutions for newer religious buildings.”
